As an auto body shop owner I strive to find the most cost effective yet quality products that we can by scouring the internet and its usually just trial and error... came across these wash mitts and decided to give them a try based on the many excellent reviews posted.... so glad we did. My guys on my detailing team LOVE them, they are soft, work very well to whisk away the dirt, not to heavy when wet, made of excellent quality microfiber, and seem to be very well made. I actually have noticed that the guys are banging out the cars quicker... lol. So for me this is truly an excellent purchase!! Highly recommend this product.
I got these for my kids to wash my wife's car for mother's day.
The customer service was impressive. I was contacted via email shortly after the mitts were delivered asking if everything was satisfactory. At the time, we had not even used the mitts; but I took them out of the packaging and they fitted my hands well and out of the corner of my eyes, a very slight yellowish stain on one of the many chenille fingers caught my attention. Since we had not used the mitts yet at that point, I casually mentioned the stain as the only feedback I could give to Michael (from Blue Care). Within hours on the weekend, Michael sent back a note saying that a replacement would be sent out first thing Monday morning. I wasn't even thinking of asking for a replacement or lodging a complaint. Michael and BlueCare made their customers their first priority. Onto the functionality of the mitts: they worked great. Our car is often parked under trees which would inevitably leave stains on the car roof and hood. The kids put on the mitts and managed to impress their mother with a very shiny clean car.
Score, winner, winner. I've used the mitts four times now on fairly new and dirty cars, and a truck with no problems. The description in the product title is very accurate. Well made, very adsorbent, large, thick, and soft, although stiff enough to remove bird droppings, tree sap, bugs splats, etc., without scratching. Excellent quality at a great price, especially for a 2-pack.
I thought the mitt design would help keep it on the car and off the ground. It did, no problem. I also tried placing my hand outside on top. I have better control outside the mitt. It's easier to flip over and use both sides. There is also more cushion between my hand and the car. My hand sinks into the mitt like on a form mattress. I can scrub without the feel of digging into the paint. Great control, no drops to the ground with hand on top.
I washed them after each use along with microfiber rags in a clothes washer set on delicate, cold water, and generic clear, no-odor, liquid soap. Then into a dryer set on gentle, low heat. No raveling or signs of wear/damage. My guess is it will probably be a while before I need to buy again.
Update 1/25/17 -- The seller had read my original review below and offered to send me the XL size at no charge. I accepted and received them two days later via Prime. The XL size is what I needed. The seller was not obligated to send me the larger size whatsoever but did so in order to maintain excellent customer service. And for that, I am changing my original 3-star review to 5 stars!
Original review (3 stars): I ordered the "LARGE" size, but they didn't fit. My hands measure 8 inches (20 cm) from wrist to tip of middle finger. The mitts I received are SQUARE in shape, not rectangular as shown in the photos and were too short to use -- unless I made fists with my hands, and that's not practical.
So I had to return them, unfortunately.
I'm hesitant to try the "XL" size unless the internal measurements are provided.
I used to wash my parents car when I was younger and they used sponges or old rags which can pick up dirt or debris, and can leave scratches on the car's paint. and some of those sponges/rags do not absorb enough water or soap to wash a bigger area. I love that I can just soak these wash mitts and clean a third of the car with ease. Also this mitts can pick up more debris or dirt and would be less likely to scratch the paint of the car, because the microfibers are longer and the dirt would be more on the inside of the mitt and not the outer part. I love washing my car and families cars now because these mitts makes it much easier and faster.
These are great if you need them for only ONE wash. I purchased the gloves two days ago, and midway through washing my car yesterday I noticed a gaping hole in the right side of the glove. It seemed to just fall apart at the seams. What good is Premium Microfiber if it doesn't stay on the glove?
Think it was user error? I did a two bucket system hand car wash on my car taking time to slowly wash my car panel by panel. Never snagged on anything sharp or got rough with it. The issue is the seams can't handle the weight of the material when it is saturated.
I guess I would recommend this product if you are going to use it for drying only, or maybe dusting your car.
I purchased these premium microfiber car wash mitts on February 26, 2017. I waited until I actually used them to wash my car before submitting a review. I can safely say after using these to wash my new car for the first time, they worked extremely well. I first did a touchless wash with a pressure washer to remove loose dirt and debris. Then, I did a touch wash with these mitts, and they did an excellent job pulling dirt off of my car and trapping them in the mitt so they didn't scratch my car's clear coat.
Cleaning the mitts was as simple as wringing them out, putting them in the washing machine with detergent (don't use fabric softener), and then air drying them. Mitts looked good as new with no noticeable fraying.
I look forward to getting many quality car washes out of these mitts. I would recommend them to anyone interested in a high quality, high performing car wash mitt.
Super absorbent microfiber mitts! I've never used a product like this before, but afterwards I am convinced that this is yet another great addition to your cleaning toolkit. You can put in considerable "elbow grease" for those tougher to clean spots. Pair this with a quality sponge and you really cannot go wrong. What makes this deal even sweeter is the free microfiber cloth. Worked very well with waxing the car, no complaints.
I am planning on ordering a few more once summer rolls around! I look forward to the warmer days!
